Dalhart Texan sold - History in transition
Dear loyal readers and supporters of the Dalhart Texan, one of the few things you can count on in life is this: things change. Sometimes we look forward to it, sometimes change comes upon us unexpectedly. Either way, it is always hoped that things change for the better.
After 67 years, it is finally time for the Dalhart Texan to change hands. This beautiful newspaper has been in my family since my daddy, Kenneth Hogue, moved to Dalhart in 1946. In June of 1989, Bob and I returned to Dalhart to take over the family tradition, and have been at it for the last 24 years. Therefore, the decision to sell the paper wasn’t an easy one to make, and I did not make it in haste.
Running a small town newspaper is a way of life. The Texan has reported on all sorts of local news, from births to deaths and everything in between. We’ve been at all the football games. We’ve covered every election. We’ve celebrated every XIT Rodeo and Reunion and been with you during every holiday. I have seen Dalhart grow and change in ways I never imagined, and I have made many friends.
